Sounds like you're not burning oil (blue smoke would be a good indicator of this) but you're leaking oil. Most likely source considering how much oil you're losing would be the valve cover gasket. Look under the hood for any pools of oil under the air breather pan around the valve cover. If you're not seeing oil on the ground where you park, it could all be burning off on the manifold.
If it's not the valve cover gasket, then next likely source could be oil seals.

Engine burning oil


you should be checking the Oil Level more often than 5K miles but my 2009 Toyota Corolla burns oil (Not a LEAK), just consumes oil (1 Quart every 2K miles). It has done this since it was Brand New and Toyota said (ADD MORE OIL).... So that is what we have done. Watch the level and make sure you add more.

I own a 2001 Toyota corolla, I am burning about a quart of oil every 300 miles....


Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

My odometer reading changes, it was 87,900 when i bought it. Last week it was 99,900 and today it is 88,900...What is going on? I have a 2009 toyota corolla that I bought in June 2012


There is a reading on the Lower Right that indicates if it is Km or MI, It sounds like your Instrument Cluster is going bad or someone made a mistake with the Mileage on the Oil Change Sticker.

Pay close attention for the next few days and see what happens....

Well looking at the age of your car,it would need a valve seals replacement,in order to fix your problem.This would cost you around for about 1500-2000 $.

My 2000 toyota corolla has been losing at least 2 quarts of oil betweem my 3000 mile oil change most times I am down 1-2qrts between oil changes & I have to put oil in .I have had the entire oil pan...


You need to determine where the oil is being lost. Open the hood and look for traces of oil. Place a clean piece of cardboard under the car and idle the engine - at the rate you are losing oil, you should see where the oil is dripping onto the cardboard within a few minutes, then work upward from there. Possibilities: Crankshaft seal (passenger side of engine), valve cover gasket (top of engine), main seal (driver side of engine). Any of these can go bad, far many reasons.

Toyota tundera v6 ran for fifty miles 2 quarts low on engine oil! dave


Probably didn't hurt it, my 2002 was ran for 2000 miles 1 1/2 quarts low on oil due to dummies putting only 5 quarts of oil back in it after changing the oil. It takes 6 1/2 quarts. It didn't hurt it at all.

Bought an 07 avalanche used at 30k miles. Burns about 2 quarts of oil every other week. No oil stains in driveway. White smoke occassionly when starting up. Dealership doesnt have a clue.


Replace the driver side valve cover. It leaks internally into the pcv system and gets burned. you don't see much smoke because the catalytic convertors burn it up.

when the car is running do you have blue smoke from the exhaust? :If so then the piston rings are fried. If not then do you have oil on the motor around the valve covers? If so then the valve cover gaskets needs replacement.
